|A type of Staffordshire pottery first produced by the brothers Job and George Ridgway in 1792 at Shelton, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.|
Despite family devisions, the Ridgways continued to produce their high-quality earthenware with blue printed designs well into the 20th century. The Ridgway potteries made tea, dessert, and dinner services of a hard-wearing type of porcelain to compete with Minton ware, who's designs the imitated as well as those of Worcester, Rockingham, and Spode.
